Human Resources & Labor law

We advise you regarding all questions about individual and collective labour law both from the employer’s and employee’s perspective.

We offer you consulting services in terms of the verification, conception and revision of employment contracts, with special attention being paid to issues concerning social and tax law. Our colleagues, who specialize in labour law and have many years of experience, are at your service in shaping the remuneration, possibly through agreements which set targets or other individual remuneration concepts.

We also happily advise and assist you regarding all questions relating to the termination of the employment relationship. We support you in and out of court regardless of whether a warning has been issued, a notice to terminate is planned or has already been given, or regardless of whether a termination agreement with severance pay arrangement has to be negotiated. Additionally, we offer our assistance with regard to disputes concerning the issuance of mandatory labour certificates in the proper form or any claims arising out of the employment contract.

In the event of significant changes at company level, such as mass layoffs, takeovers, business closures or shutdowns, there is often great need for advice ahead of the preparation and implementation of the measure concerned. We offer you, as the employer, full support concerning labour law in case of such changes within the company, ranging from the planning to the required negotiations with the employee organization (balance of interests and social plan) and representation in proceedings concerning labour law after the change in the company has been carried out. We give advice to employees who are affected by such company changes about the repercussions for their employment relationship, and we support them in negotiations and discussions with the employer.
Finally, our colleagues specializing in labour law give you expert advice and support in the field of industrial relations law, particularly as regards the negotiation and drawing up of company agreements.
